Welcome to the Dania Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (DBCRA). This is an exciting time for the DBCRA as we lay the groundwork for the redevelopment and revitalization of the urban core of the City as well as its surrounding neighborhoods.  The CRA’s goal is to  implement the vision for the City which was created through dialogue between the residents of Dania Beach, business leaders, community stakeholders and the Dania Beach City Commission.  Meetings were held during the summer of 2008 through a series of workshops and charrettes. Out of the dialogue with the community, the City Commission drafted a new vision and mission statement for the City that was inclusive of its desire to promote development, redevelopment and economic development within the City while maintaining the small town charm for which Dania Beach is so well known.

Vision Statement

“Established in History,
Preparing for Tomorrow”

Mission Statement

“Dania Beach is committed to providing a unique small-town quality of living for all of its residents and guests.  We do so by maintaining beautiful neighborhoods and vibrant commercial centers throughout the City while being fiscally responsible and having a diverse population and business community.”


The DBCRA is an independent government agency that was fully established in 2004 by the City of Dania Beach and Broward County, under Chapter 163 of the Florida Statutes. The DBCRA is charged with the responsibility of eliminating conditions of slum and blight that exist within the City and helping to improve the quality of life by revitalizing the City’s physical, economic and social resources.

The CRA’s activities are designed to solve the underlying problems of slum and blighted conditions throughout the urban core and its neighborhoods through sound planning, sustainable development, redevelopment and economic development. These intiatives create a lively, vibrant, safe and walkable atmosphere for both residents and visitors.

Approved FY 2013-2014 Budget



Effective immediately the Dania Beach PATCH Market Garden will be closed temporarily for renovations and upgrades. The market garden will reopen in August 2014 with new features including a new plant nursery, new services and a Pavilion for the Farmers Market. 

We look forward to welcoming you back to the PATCH when we reopen.”
